Forgive

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song during a difficult time when i was not getting along with my father...I was so angry and decided instead of writing about how mad i was, i would write about forgiveness... so this is the song that emerged- also inspired by the concept that you can't create peace in the world until you go back and make peace with your biological family...

Lyrics

Time to be born again, gotta go through a struggle,
before you reach the sweet end...
The spiral of self-discovery sends you
plummeting down again,
into the deep dark depths of your pain
fear and insecurity.

Forgive and let it be, we are who we are-
Accept, surrender to the way it is,
we've come so far.
Liberate yourself from the sadness
that is holding you down--
You have the power
to turn your world around.

We all want the sweetness of sunrise and
the deepness of sunset in our lives.
But how do we cope in a world of such hate
where fear and death and evil create
this reality...this reality

If you want peace go back and make peace with your family.
Have loving kindness toward yourself...

Forgive and let it be,
Have faith like the bird who sings to the dark,
knowing the dawn will come.
Liberate yourself form the sadness that is
holding you down--
You have the power
to turn your world around.

If you want peace go back and make peace with your family.
Have loving kindness toward yourself.
There will never be peace
until people learn to love themselves...
Love is...love is perfect

Forgive and let it be, we are who we are-
Accept, surrender to the way it is,
we've come so far.
Liberate yourself form the sadness that is
holding you down--
You have the power to turn your world around.
We have the power to turn ourselves around.
We have the power to turn this world around.
